Your Smile Dogs Me Everywhere I Go
To quote a 60s Classic,
"Breakin' Up Is Hard To Do!"
This song describes the mental and emotional turmoil
which often follows a sudden break-up,
especially a one-sided one.
Old shared habits and scenes can
still pop up in one's mind,
driving one to despair, and possibly to drink.
Ross got hooked on the concept of using the word
Dog as a Verb, then he got into an Animal Riff,
and the song just seemed to write itself from there,
with liberal input from Allan Stein & Mairi Maclean
who add some great jazz chords into the vocal mix.
